This is what remains of my sock yarn stash. I had no idea I went for the pink and purple this much. I wouldn't even call these my favorite colors but apparently, when I buy yarn, they are. Gah!

    I have the same problem. Every time I look in my stash, I'm like, WTF with the pink??

    Dude, there is this thing where if people ask me what my favorite color is, I usually say something like "I love everything except purple" but if you look at my sock yarn stash I have a massive amount of purple in there and I have no idea why because I STILL say I don't like purple, except apparently when it comes to sock yarn.

    Yup, don't have this problem. I have an orange tweed problem.

    My favorites are 1, 2, 3, 5, 10 & 11... while you have a pink problem I have a sock yarn in general problem... I want more and more and more...

    what is up with that? me too. a knitter friend of mine claims that it's hard to find richly dyed blues and greens and that's why people go for the jewel tones. i'm still skeptical.

    i think orange tweed is better than blinding pink any day, don't you??? how's that tweedy aran coming?

    Finished up the collar tonight. It is all seamed up, except the sleeves are unattached. I need to try to block them bigger to fit my peasant girl arms.
